National Communities

We want all nations making observations in the Southern Ocean to be recognised for their contributions to the international effort. Funding and implementation of national projects and programs form the bedrock of SOOS data collection and delivery, and a sustained observing system cannot be achieved without these national efforts.

National Capabilities and Representatives

With the support of SCOR, and utilising publicly available data from CCAMLR, COMNAP and the ATCM, and through direct liaison with national contacts, SOOS is providing information on national capabilities, such as routine shipping transects, routine underway observations, core funding, data and research bodies, and links to national science strategies. The table below provides links to all information currently collected for each nation. Please contact your National Representative or the SOOS Data Officer if you would like to provide updated national information.

Nations differ in their capacity to make Southern Ocean observations, and collaborative efforts are often hindered by a lack of knowledge of existing and planned national activities, funding schemes, and shipping and infrastructure capabilities. To aid communication and ensure involvement of all nations, SOOS is also building a network of National Representatives (see the table below).

If your nation does not have a National Representative or if the National Capabilities information needs updating, please contact the SOOS Executive Officer.
